Meghan McCain on Tuesday reacted angrily when Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke said that President Donald Trump is acting like a Nazi during an appearance on ABC’s “The View.”
After O’Rourke talked about the need to stand up to Trump’s extremism, McCain objected to some of the language he’s used to describe the dangers of the movement that the president has been leading.
“You’re talking about Trump supporters, comparing them to Nazis in Nuremberg,” she said. “That sounds extreme to me as well.”
“No, I’m not comparing everyone…” O’Rourke began.
“You compared his rally to Nuremberg!” McCain interrupted.
O’Rourke then replied to explain why he made that comparison.
“Asking four women of color to go back to their home countries…” he began.
“We agree on that!” McCain said, again interrupting.
“And then connect it to everything else he’s doing,” O’Rourke continued. “The press as the ‘enemy of the people?’ There is only one path that will take us down.”
McCain then objected to say that O’Rourke still didn’t have to talk disparagingly of people who attend Trump rallies.
“We all have accountability for our actions,” O’Rourke said. “And everyone at that rally who shouted to ‘send them back’ is responsible for that as well.”
At this point the audience erupted in cheers.
O’Rourke went on to explain how he understood that not everyone who voted for Trump was a bigot and said that he campaigned all over Texas, even in counties where Trump won huge majorities.

Morning Joe uses Fox News report to ridicule Trump’s business skills in coming trade deal with China
During a discussion on bad economic reports indicating that the U.S. may be heading for a recession, "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough first mocked President Donald Trump's business acumen before predicting that he will cobble together a bad deal with China in hopes of slowing down the economic slide before the 2020 election.
Using a report he heard on Fox News, which predicted that same scenario, the MSNBC host noted that China knows they have the president over a barrel.
"I actually heard this on Fox News last week. somebody expressing real concern that the Chinese already know that, for Donald Trump, the only sort of economic trick he has left in his bag is to come to a resolution on the trade war with China to get the economy going," Scarborough recalled. "Well, if we all know that, then the Chinese leaders know that. Xi [Jinping] knows that."
‘Part of me wanted to leave’: Lone attendee of Steve King town hall turns out to be a ‘hungover’ Democrat
Rep. Steve King (R-IA) is being told to resign by members of his own party who are tired of his overt racism. While many Republicans might exhibit racist tendencies and make apologies for the president's racism, King says things out loud the GOP would just assume he keep quiet on. The true test, however, comes from King's own district and whether or not they're willing to reelect him in November.
The key revelation came at a recent townhall King held, where the only person who attended was a hungover Democrat. The Iowa Starting Line reported the pathetic event, where it seemed more members of the press were willing to show up than actual constituents.
